  1. Banned because I'M SO JEALOUS I CAN'T EVEN STAND IT.
  2. Banned because I'm not even all that happy, lulll. I'm stuck at work. Twenty-two more minutes. Let's go, kids. I want the long weekend NOW.
  3. My physics HL teacher made us (yep, all 12 of us) learn the last four units on our own because she failed to pace the class properly throughout the year. The self taught units included the two options - astrophysics and particle physics. Not exactly the easiest stuff to learn on your own. So to answer your question, hell yes. She. Was. Useless.
  4. Banned for being depressed. Come on now, cheer up, smell the roses, frolick in grassy fields, etc.
  5. Dude, join the club. I don't think ANY IB student can claim to having fantastic study habits, because procrastination rules the IB roost. There are ways to minimise the negative effects of procrastination (such as, you know, getting your ass in gear), but seriously. It happens. A lot. Honestly, you don't have to be some certified genius to do IB. A lot of people in my classes were average students, but because they truly WANTED to do well, they ended up getting at least over 35 points. Don't jump into it if you're not positive, because it's a huge time commitment and kind of turns you into a social pariah, LOL. But it's definitely worth it for university, especially since I used a good handful of my credits towards usless first-year classes. And even though I got sucked into the vortex of procrastination alongside everyone else, I came out with a good knowledge of how to study in post-secondary. So really, it's worth it. And yes, don't be flippant with CAS! Get on your hours as soon as humanly possible. It'll make your life soooo much easier.
  6. Edging on 20. I can't believe IB exams were already two years ago for me. So old. So sad.
  7. Nope. I shower when I'm in the shower. Cutting-edge, I know. Honestly, I like to relax when I'm in the shower. That's my "me time" where I can be alone and be pensive.
  8. Not anymore. I used to play piano and flute, but I've long since given up both due to the fact that I started studying ballet seriously, LOL. I'd love to pick up piano again, though. What sport do you always dread in Phys. Ed. classes?
  9. Abso-friggin-lutely. How often do you go to movie theatres?
  10. Banned for not using enough!?.../";!*
  11. Uh.......good question. My junior high teachers knew I wasn't being challenged enough, so they brought up the notion of IB. Also, my next door neighbour just happened to teach IB history at the high school I was about to attend, and so I kept getting information and stories from him. And then my father jumped on the bandwagon with my mother soon to follow, and I found myself surrounded by a whole bunch of people that were IB-crazy. So I essentially gave in.

    English EE

    If you read the IBO guide for extended essays, you'll realise that 2 of the 36 possible marks are devoted to the student choosing a focused research question. Therefore, it's your responsibility to at least come up with some ideas, from which we can help you decide. Furthermore, I agree with the above posters...Harry Potter is a road frequently traveled when it comes to the EE. As the writer, it's your job to maintain the interest of your reader - and considering some marks are alloted for holistic enjoyment, you're definitely going to want to rope them in. So if you REALLY want to do HP, I highly suggest you think outside the box so that it's not "just another Harry Potter EE." Try and do some brainstorming on your own, and then we can step in and help you narrow it down rationally.
  13. Banned for apologising when there's clearly no reason to apologise. If I gave you a compulsion to apologise, then I myself apologise, but I'm banning you for apologising anyways.
  14. Banned because it's true. False information. I'm no longer chewing on my teddy bear. I'm now sporting a nervous expression in a very makeshift webcam photo. So take THAT, Mister "I Hate Tangents."
  15. Banned because I want to see Melon Island!
